In House #1612: Asylum St. Spankers Tonight in Boise
The Asylum Street Spankers bring their rollicking road show to Boise's Tom Grainey's tonight, a rare Idaho appearance for the Austin, TX-based band. Over the course of 12 years, numerous releases, and scores of band members, the Spankers have become reknowned for their raucous stage act and deft ability to move between genres. With songs often full of humor, as exhibited on their latest single, "Stick Magnetic Ribbons On Your SUV," one might mistake them for something of a novelty act. But these guys ain't no Americana Yankovic, and the musicianship is unmistakeable whether they're tackling speak-easy jazz, bluegrass, country swing, or some priorly-unknown genre in between.
In House #1612.
